The following is an update of Tim’s plan to retire early. Please note we are mortgage free and because I have forgot to do this for a while I’m jumping through all these months in a condensed version of my usual update.
Our ultimate goal between investments and the home equity is a net worth of around $1 million. The investment part of that target is ~$550,000.

Did your eyes hurt reading all those numbers? Mine did just preparing them, but after putting this off for FAR too long.
Just a few broad comments, you likely noticed the big jump in investments from Dec 2015 to Jan 2016, well that was because I was being lazy about helping my wife open up a taxable investment account. So the cash just hung out in our chequing account for the last six months of 2015, which isn’t included in these updates. The other notable jump was Feb to March 2016 which was just a combination of stock market surge, and tax refund.
